Question
I am writing my memoirs of two seperate tours as a Blue Angels Jet Mechanic. What kind of publisher would be interested in this type book. I think the book will appeal to anyone who has seen an airshow, and former and current military people.

Answer
I think this a great idea for a memoir, and I think it can sell with the right hook. But first, have you considered a little extra editing help to polish it up? Browse my Web site if you're interested (www.FinalDraftLiterary.com).

Since it's so difficult to acquire a book deal without an agent nowadays, I'll give you a listing of some agents who are currently interested in seeking new representation. I hope this helps, and remember: the more agents you submit to, the more likely you'll find a home for your book. Writing is all about persistence!
